#thankfulthursday 🗣Let's talk Residual income, Or Passive income, Or an Additional Stream of Income and how it can help your PETS shall we? 💚 I am SO F-ing GRATEFUL that this little side Hustle pays as Generously as it does.
It affords me the Opportunity to #domorebemoregivemore 🐱🐓🐥 Yesterday we were surprised to Welcome some new additions to our family, 1 rescued kitten and 2 Chickens (2 separate incidents). Well, that meant some additional bills to get our other 2 adult cats boosted and yearly exams since Lil Miss has to get cleaned up. 😔 A couple hundred dollars added expense I wasn't expecting and for a second I had a bit of anxiety about it. 🤔BUT then I remembered I have a big ol chunk of change I haven't even touched on not 1 but TWO OF my payment cards from my company. 💳 BOOM - slapped down that card with not even a thought. This was NOT something I could have done a year ago. It's money I don't "live" on. It's not Bill money or "job" money. It's extras - for fun AND Emergencies. I've only used that card a couple other times in a year. Because again - it's an extra pool of money that I don't live on. 😍 You can't put a price on bringing a baby girl kitty back to health and watching your crazy cat partner love on her. Or rescuing chickens from deplorable conditions. This amazing residual opportunity affords me this with not a worry now. 😂Because even though I didn't "work" yesterday - I STILL GOT PAID.
😇 Many thanks to my Amazing Neighbor who paid for baby girl's 1st vet visit and rescuing her off the streets where she would have been coyote food for sure. *
Okay... it's time for another edition of real talk with Nicole! 🤦🏻♀️🤓 so the past couple of days I have been feeling 🤢😳😭[don't think it was "the virus"] but just feeling yucky! 🙅🏻
So... I didn't workout the past two days, and guess what??? I don't feel guilty about that! 🙅🏻
I did a #walk365 challenge a couple of years ago, and I LOVED it! But because I felt so much pressure, I walked with the stomach virus!!! 😳🤦🏻♀️
Can I tell you how grateful I am for the grace and kindness of this fitness journey? It's a journey - meaning that because I was sick and took two days off, that doesn't mean I have quit!! It means I am human and got sick! It means I will be right back at the mat as soon as I feel better! [hopefully tomorrow] I am learning through this journey to extend grace... even to myself! #fightback#fitnessjourney#gratitudeisanattitude#elroi#21daysofgratitude
So I have been challenged to do #21daysofgratitude with the Fit Sisterhood, and it has been challenging to sit down and think of people I am grateful for and why! 🍁
Not that I don't like most people, but I am super selective of those who really know me! Outside of the #beatygirls there may be 2 or 3 who I call when things are tough and from whom I expect the midnight calls when I am needed! 🍁
@sfandersonteach is my oldest friend. I have known her for more than half of my life! We may not talk every day, but we pick up where we left off every time! Also, I love her heart for people and Jesus! 🍁
@melissa_todd33 is my teacher friend who is also so much more! She has taught me so much about teaching! She has seen me on my worst day, and she somehow knows when I need to just be quiet! She has both talked me off ledges and given me courage to be bold enough to speak! 🍁
Both of these ladies are so vital to my life, and I am so thankful for the role they have played and continue to play! Much love to my tribe! #elroi#gratitudeisanattitude#21daysofgratitude
So POWERFUL to have amazing Business Partners!
💚 Today we were Blessed to Share Wellness with 15 people. One family alone brought 8 people!
↘ What if YOU said YES first and could impact those around you in the most Positive way with Health and Financial gain? ↘ What if YOU could CHOOSE who you work with - and some of those people are not financially tied to you in any way - you just dig their vibe? ↘ What if YOU could ignite HOPE in an entire family and help ease their discomfort or financial stress? ✔I got to do ALL of those things and more today.
👭 Come for the Wellness- Stay for the Community. *
Shout out to my teammate, Alenka Fields, for her generosity for allowing me and Amanda Jane Bravo to stay for FREE at this luxurious room last night. Had a great sleep and almost missed my flight with only half hour to spare before boarding this morning😁. Phew!
To think we only really "bonded" the last two days says a lot about the culture and family that our nutrition company had created---The culture of servitude and family!
So grateful that our nutrition company's values aligns to mine. .
I took a long walk today in the old neighborhood I grew up in and thought about all the memories. Riding my bike up and down the hill, playing road hockey with the neighborhood kids, throwing parties I was way too young to be throwing and it made me think of what this day really means to me. Give thanks, for everything. I even took time to think of all the bad times, the challenges, the lonely nights locked away in my room, the depression and anxiety that's haunted me for a great deal of my life. I just walked and walked and gave thanks for all of it, I sent out super positive vibes of gratitude out to all my old friends I don't see anymore and those I'm blessed to have in my life on a daily. Man, I encourage anyone to do this today, it just about brought me to tears. I'm just so joyous to have been blessed with the life I have, it feels like I often overlook that fact and forget about it. "Yeah sure I'm blessed, lucky, grateful, sure..." But not really taking the time to feel it. But man, at some point I'm just gonna die and it really makes me want to cherish this shit now. I can't wait until later to feel good, to be happy or to be okay with my life...this is it right now. This moment. Live it.
I don't know where this rant comes from or what. Part of me feels like I have an obligation to share these thoughts because someday, these words, my music, my message, is all that will be left of me and I don't wanna leave this world without authentically expressing my experience. I feel alive, I feel at peace and I feel blessed as fuck.
Happy Gratitude Day❤️
Blessings galore. I am only twelve shy of my goal to hit the 10/15 goal. Thank you ALL who have helped to drive it this far so fast. We would love to have you join our Gratitude Tryb if you haven't already!

The concept of Gratitude is not a new one. In fact we've heard it many times now.....right?
But how many of us truely live with a Grateful heart, all the time? I recognise there are times when I slip out of this state of being and into a state of struggle, which requires force and effort, rather than flow and allowance.
One of my mentors taught me a super fun exercise, which is to write out your lucky bitch list (more commonly referred to as a gratitude list). Love this! Such a powerful exercise, to dedicate time to focusing on everything in your life that is freakin AWESOME right now.
Today, if you find yourself in a space of struggle - I challenge you to set aside 5 minutes to complete this exercise, once you start - you won't want to stop!
Come back home, into your grateful heart.
